Painted Lady

There were many Painted Lady butterflies feeding in our garden today. The pink flower base was too nice to resist taking a portrait of this one.

Loafing Before The Hop

Early morning in the cool air is a time fo insects to wait for some sunshine and warmth to get the day going. Such was the case with this grasshopper a few mornings ago.

Red-banded Hairstreak

This beautiful little butterfly, which is found from Long Island to the Florida Keys, was feeding in our garden this afternoon, for which I am very grateful.

Waiting Patiently

I actually drove away from the beach tonight before sunset, but hadn’t gotten far before the sun popped out beneath the clouds. I quickly turned around and was rewarded with a beautiful sky perfectly lit.

A fish gets a brief view of life above the water just before its trip to an egret stomach.
